CHASE THE SUN


CHASE THE SUN

Chase the Sun Italia is “the most romantic long distance cycling challenge”.
It’s a ride, not a race. An annual challenge, cycling the longest day of the year, from sunrise to sunset, coast to coast, east to west. Maybe the 
world’s best collective cycling adventure! Chase the Sun Italia runs from Cesenatico to Tirrenia, from the Adriatic sea to the Tirrenian sea.

To find out how far you can ride in one day, choose the longest day of the year. Start to ride at the first rays of sunrise. From east to west, to chase the sun.

The Italian edition is follows Chase The Sun’s established rules: you must start at sunrise and arrive no later than sunset. There are no medals on arrival, just a little gift and the huge satisfaction of being a finisher!

MORE INFO

The event promoters take care of all logistics, with a special welcome dinner in Cesenatico and even“more special” sunset arrival dinner in Tirrenia. Every participant has to look after himself en route. We are here for advice, but it is the other riders you will meet on the day who will create the unforgettable memories of your Chase the Sun experience.

Four major climbs and many rolling hills waiting for you on this route. First ascent at km 38, 7.3 climbing to arrive to Rocca delle Caminate. A very technical descent to Predappio, ride slowly to allow for the bad road surface. From Predappio start the second long gentle climb to Valico Tre Faggi, about 40km and 860m climbing, to reach the top at 930 meters above the sea. Very gentle and easy for first 20kms, then medium difficulty to the summit. Tre Faggi is the “Cima Coppi”, the highest summit of our route. Not many places for taking on water. From the top a long descent to Florence. First check-point atBar Cavallino – km 93,5 a few kilometers after the summit. After Florence, about at 162km the third long ascent to Carmignano, 380m climbing over about 12 kilometers to arrive at 420m above the sea. Second check-point Il Pinone restaurant – 174km We suggest you rest and eat (pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale). The fourth and last ascent starts between Bientina and Buti at 221km, 530m climbing in about 11 kilometers to reach 610m above sea-level at Passo Prato Ceragiola. This is the last summit of the route and third check-point, Cristalli restaurant after 234km.Arrival and last check-point on the Tirrenia beach. Before sunset. You are a FINISHER.
